Author/Artist Bio

R.H.W. Dillard, a professor of English at Hollins University, teaches courses in film as a narrative art that focus on close readings of films by a single filmmaker or in a single genre. In addition to his novels, short stories, poems, and literary criticism, he has written essays on the horror film and the films of Fellini and is the author of the critical monograph, Horror Films. He is co-author of the screenplay of Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster, a film which, according to Leonard Maltin, "has gained a peculiar cult reputation"!

Four of Virginia's (and the nation's) most honored poets gather for an unprecedented reading. With roots and long histories in Virginia, R. H. W. Dillard, George Garrett, Henry Taylor, and Ellen Bryant Voigt host a clambake (a poembake) in our own back yard.

Co-sponsored by New Virginia Review Inc. and Blackbird: an online journal of literature and the arts
